Steve McCabe MP is backing the Secret Life of Us campaign, led by a coalition of over 35 children’s charities called the Disabled Children’s Partnership.

I have publicised my annual Veterans’ Day event by posting a personal invitation to local land girl Lilian Coomber. This year’s invite is unique however, as it has been posted using the first class stamp from the most recent commemorative set of stamps, Britain Alone, which features land girl Mona Mcleod.My annual Veterans’ Day event, organised in conjunction with Swanshurst School , has gone from strength to strength.

Earlier this week I hosted a reception yesterday with leading Indian businessmen in the House of Commons. The Chairmen of some of India’s largest companies were present including Ashok Lowland and Hindustan Motors. India is reportedly the second largest source of inward investment into the UK and over 600 Indian companies have a base here. In 2008/9 over 4,000 jobs were created in the UK as a result of Indian inward investment.

The reception was to show support to vulnerable children, young people and their families in Birmingham. At the ‘The Smart Money’ event I saw first-hand not only how effective early intervention services are in tackling deep rooted problems such as deprivation and neglect before they spiral out of control but also the economic benefits they bring to the public purse.
